INeKE San Francisco

Jaipur Chai

eau de parfum



Jaipur Chai is a translation of the goodness of an aromatic, warming Chai tea, without being too sweet or predictable. A perfume that fully shows the olfactive signature and skills of San Francisco based perfumer Ineke Rühland.

"Halfway around the world from Jaipur, this fragrance came about during the rainy season in San Francisco. Chai lattes provided cozy warmth most afternoons while the drumbeat of rain on glass provided sound effects." - Ineke Rühland

Chai tea has an artfully balanced blend of cinnamon, clove, cardamom, ginger, nutmeg, and pepper. Add steamed milk and honey, and you have a frothy treat that inspired the yummy gourmand notes of Jaipur Chai.

A subtle rose note in this fragrance reflects the pink buildings for which Jaipur is famous. Dry cedar and guaiac woods balance the sweetness, and a soft suede note is like a punctuation mark.


Black tea, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, rose, cedar wood, guaiac wood, vanilla, suede, musk


INeKE San Francisco

Ineke Rühland is a classically trained perfumer who creates original fragrances in her independent studio in San Francisco.

She was born and educated in Canada but moved to Europe in 1988 for a career in the perfume industry. Thus she discovered a passion for the creative role of professional “nose”. She started her perfumery training at ISIPCA in Versailles, France in 1996. She lived in Grasse and combined her studies with the study of traditional techniques.

After a three-year internship at a perfume house in Paris, Ineke moved to San Francisco where she combines her talent for perfumery with her love of design, literature and art in the creation of her perfume "stories", named following the alphabet. We wish that also after Z, Ineke keeps on creating!

Simply delicious

Jaipur Chai is a beautiful take on chai note and a versatile, all-season perfume in my non-expert opinion. I think Ineke's Jaipur elegantly strikes a balance between spicy and gourmand, which I really like. Once again, thank you, Perfume Lounge's team, for your flawless communication and client service. I really enjoyed the extra samples you sent me with my order!

Dear Monica, thank you for your compliments on the perfume itself and our service.

Enjoy and hope to (e)see you next time, regards, Tanja
